About TransFolk of WA:
TransFolk of WA is a support service for all transgender people and their loves ones in Western Australia. The organisation provides accessible safe spaces where members can expect dynamic support.
TransFolk of WA was originally founded as Transmen of WA in 2012 to reach out to Transmen and other female assigned at birth people for friendship and support. This remains the core value throughout our expansion to include services for Transwomen and all gender diverse people.
Currently we have three main projects:
- Online Groups
Our online spaces are safe and welcoming places where our members can swap important information, socialise and share experiences. We have groups of gender diverse adults, youth, parents of trans people and partners of trans people.
From our group full of wonderful and supportive people, we have hand-picked an experienced team of mentors to provide ongoing peer support to any gender diverse person in need. We ensure that our members are checked on by someone who cares, and that we have a diverse team so that we have someone for everyone.
- Support Groups
Our parent support group is open to all parents of a gender diverse person. These sessions are professionally facilitated by a counsellor and we invite guest speakers from both the trans community and from related organisations.
